My son went fishing for the very first time and had a blast!
He has been asking to go ever since. We have a small plastic fishing pole and these little fish for the bathtub that he has taken out and been playing with non-stop. It isn't much of a game for an almost three year old, but he just really wanted to fish.
I had the kids home with me while working and needed something to keep my son busy for a little while, so I broke out the felt, buttons, yarn, paperclips and some needle and thread and we busted out a fishing game in under 20 minutes! I free-cut the fish, sewed on a button for an eye, and put the paperclip on as a mouth. Tied some yarn to a stick, hot glued it in place, added a magnet to the other end and we were done. We ended up taking a marker and adding a few dots and things to the fish, but nothing fancy.
He went on to play with this new toy for an hour! We took a break for lunch and he ran right back to it. We then had a competition to see who could fish out the most fish from a bucket. Of course he won. ;)
When my daughter got home she joined in the fun too. And what do you do when you catch fish? Eat them of course!
(BTW - Did you notice the dog and cat squabbling in the top right corner of this pic? I think they wanted to play too!)
